Also why so many bombs for just 3 small targets.

They could have gotten the same result with just 3 bombs???

The strike targeted Syrian air bases as well. Russia has registered the following data.

Four missiles targeted the Damascus International Airport; 12 missiles – the Al-Dumayr airdrome, all the missiles have been shot down.

18 missiles targeted the Blai airdrome, all the missiles shot down.

12 missiles targeted the Shayrat air base, all the missiles shot down. Air bases were not affected by the strike.

Five out of nine missiles were shot down targeting the unoccupied Mazzeh airdrome.

Thirteen out of sixteen missiles were shot down targeting the Homs airdrome. There are no heavy destructions.

In total 30 missiles targeted facilities near Barzah and Jaramana. Seven of them have been shot down. These facilities allegedly relating to the so-called “Damascus military chemical programme” were partially destructed. However, the objects have not been used for a long time, so there were no people and equipment there.

SF recalls that according to the Pentagon’s version of the events, the US, the UK and France launched 105 missiles that hit the following targets:

76 missiles – “Barzah Research and Development Center”
22 missiles – “Him Shinshar Chemical Weapons Storage Site”
7 missiles – “Him Shinshar CW Bunker”

Those claims are complete and utter non-sense. The US/France/UK did not target any airbases during this strike. What you are seeing there is how propaganda gets completely out of control. The same happened when the US targeted Shayrat airbase. You have to step back and understand why the likes of the Russians have to spin the propaganda machine. For example for Shayrat 2017 they briefed that only 23 Tomahawks hit Shayrat out of 59. It is great for propaganda but falls completely apart when commercial satellite imagery was analysed post strike.

It must have been embarrassing for Major-General Igor Konashenkov to be wheeled out to make such claims. He knew the truth himself but he has to spin the propaganda.

UN unable to 'independently verify the allegations' of chemical attack in Douma

That's not actually true...

So here's the deal with chemical weapons (this is pretty close to universally true across the board almost regardless of the specific substance in question)

1. You don't keep premixed batches on hand PERIOD! This way if you have an accident or someone bombs your facility you don't accidentally release a cloud that kills everything in the surrounding areas.

2. Because of this most chem weapons are made as binary agents where you must thoroughly mix and combine the two agents and give them a certain amount of time to react to form the actual lethal agent.

3. Even once loaded into rocket warheads and bombs the substance is still binary and relies on some form of aerodynamic assisted spin mixing g force sensitive seals that are broke by the launch force to begin the process.

4. Because of 1-3 the best thing you can possibly do if you need to hit a CW site is positively blanket it with explosives. Between the high heat and the very rapid forced dispersion you have essentially a dual redundant safety system in place preventing accidental release of live agents.

So basically the answer to the questions posed here is no definitely not a war crime, and no bombing CW sites isn't all that risky if done right.

As an added bonus the binary chemicals or precursors on their own are usually very very sensitive to high heat and or degrade very quickly once diffused over a wide area.

If a tank containing Poison Gases is broken, the liquid or gas will leak out and can poison people in the proximity of the broken case. Note for fake news media : Smelly socks usually are neither poisonous nor contain nerve agents!

For more info, Germany should be asked, as they are the champions in Chemical weapon manufacturing since the time of the holocaust. During the cold war, Germany manufactured large quantities of chemical weapons to use against the USSR in case of war.

How much of the German chemical weapons stockpile do you think has been destroyed up to now ?

So in other words you didn't even bother reading the last post in this thread before writing your reply, the last post being mine and it addresses your tank full of poison gas nonsense...

Even if someone were dumb enough to store it mixed though, very high heat from combustion and atmospheric dilution are still the absolute safest ways to deal with the situation from an aircraft LOL...

Combine that with the massive overkill number of missiles fired at each target and you actually see a strike scenario tailored to protect nearby civilians as much as possible, which doesn't fit your narrative unfortunately.

Your Germany rant is just plain sad stupid and fails completely to acknowledge the post cold war history of Germany which has been at the forefront of every international campaign to ban weapons like land mines cluster munitions and et cetera!

Simply put there is no possible way that you could be this ill informed on these topics considering your active participation in them which has been ongoing for years now...

This makes it so that a reasonable person can only conclude that you're just a plain old liar... A stunningly incompetent one, yes, but still a liar.
